Reserve Colonel Gennady Alekhin spoke about the tactics of the Russian Armed Forces on the territory of Ukraine. He said that Russia could go on the offensive in September, writes URA.RU.
In his opinion, the “third corps”, which was assembled for several months from volunteers in Russia, will be involved in the offensive.
“Russia will launch a counterattack soon. Military operations will continue in all directions: in the Donbass, in the south and in the Kharkiv direction. Fighting is already underway in the vicinity of Soledar, Yakovlevka and Seversk. Today, from the tactics of a barrage and taking positions, our army will move on to the tactics of girths and breakthroughs, ”Alekhine said.
He noted that at least 60 kilometers still have to be covered in the Donbass. There, he expects new units to be involved in the battles, which received T-80, T-90 tanks, an infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) and other modern weapons.
The Armed Forces of Ukraine are now switching to NATO weapons, as Ukraine is running out of Soviet-style weapons and ammunition for it. The United States is providing billions of dollars of military aid to Ukraine, as a protracted conflict, according to Washington, will weaken Russia and lead to its defeat.
